Probably not much to a hot rodder. Odd ball engine and transmission. Suggest that you might want to look in a PRINT edition of Hemming's Motor News (the on-line version doesn't show everything or at least make it easy to find). These magazines are available at any Barnes & Noble, many bigger magazine sellers and even some libraries where I see it when I need to do some research.

I'm curious how tall a 7.3 is compared to a 430. A 430 BARELY fits in a '61-65 Lincoln, height-wise. Will the diesel fit under the hood?

With the right gearing and a the turbo, it should get pretty good MPG, maybe 18?

I got the impression he was asking about the value of the old engine and trans, once removed from the car.

The bigger question is, how much more does the diesel weigh? I'm guessing an extra 200-300 lbs before you add in the heavier trans, radiator, etc.

Well finally got some time to pull the old motor and try he diesel fitting. For the most part the diesel fits snug,have some minor fab work to relocate the oil cooler and obviously the motor mounts. This car is for sure getting a cowl hood! Which I suspected. Was able to reverse the oil pan with minor altering which made the fit very easy, wrong on getting some pics up soon

the diesel weights 920 pounds itself and if u using a E4OD it weights i believe around 330 pounds. i own a 7.3 nonintercooled 1 in a 96 f250 and if i had bigger tires and 3:73s id get better mileage. honestly my suggestion would be go 6.9-7.3 idi turbo it and u will get better mileage and it only takes 3 wires to run . 1 for starter 1 for fuel shutoff solenoid and 1 other 1. the older idis get better mileage to. my final suggestion get a custom tuned chip for ur 7.3 powerstroke dont go off the shelf as they will eat a nice built up auto

oh and with 7.3 injectors u can figure out roughly what horsepower u can make with 1cc of fuel equals 2.3hp. try it with a 140cc thats what the last of teh 7.3s had in it factory. u should be real close if not on the money
